THE JUNGLE 

BOOK

Wildlife Photo Trip

7 Days

INCLUDES

The forest described in Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book.’

Home to a rare species of hard ground swamp deer, the jungles of Kanha give you ample opportunities to make images of tigers in swamps, lush green meadows and amidst bamboo groves. The soft and golden grasslands of the meadows create a mesmerizing habitat to track and photograph tigers. In terms of tiger population density, Kanha has always been one of the top parks. The tigers in Kanha are again large and robust in size. The jungle has four tourist zones namely Kanha, Kisli, Sarhi, and Mukki.

Bandhavgarh is known for its
large tiger population and grasslands along with thick forests. It is also one of the largest tiger reserves in Central India. Photographing a tiger in this habitat includes beautiful backdrops of Sal trees. The forest is divided into three major zones, namely Tala, Magadhi and Khitauli, which are then further divided into specific routes. The reserve is closed for tourists in the afternoons every Wednesday. Due to the large population of tigers, the park boasts of easier sightings and is also called the Tiger Land of India. Tigers in Bandhavgarh are large in size and the reserve also has a big population of leopards.
